Wamanga, have you considered Sage Peachtree? They are probably QuickBooks' largest competitor, offering very similar functionality.
i don't believe that these solutions have any real function help the financial department on any type of business , these solution is just a duple entry process nothing more .
There are so many accounting software programs available, so the best one for you (or anyone else) really depends on why you are feeling the need to move to a new system. Perhaps you need to manage multiple companies, customize your financial reports, or more flexible inventory management features. These are just a few of the reasons people move from QuickBooks. The best alternative for you is the accounting software that can handle the needs of your business.
Another way to find more accounting options is through our Product Finder. You can search for Accounting, and then choose the size of your business from the menu at the top. It's a fast, easy way to get a list of software options to look through.
Blue Link (www.bluelinkerp.com) is also a great alternative.
